The Uffizi Palace, which follows a Doric style of architecture, is one of the greatest examples of sixteenth-century Italian architecture. It was built by Giorgio Vasari, after being commissioned by Cosimo I de’ Medici, Duke of Florence, who wished to use the building as an office that would bring all the administrative departments under one roof.
